D’IBERVILLE — City comptroller Sharron Perkins has been appointed interim city manager during a special D’Iberville City Council meeting.
The Sun Herald reports city attorney W. Fred Hornsby III asked the council if she should receive the same pay and benefits as had Michael Janus, who announced at Tuesday’s council meeting he was taking an unpaid leave of absence.
Councilman Teddy Harder said yes.
Perkins will also continue in her job as comptroller, overseeing the city’s financial dealings.
Mayor Rusty Quave told Perkins the city employees would work with her.
Perkins served as interim city manager in 2011, when Janus took a two-month leave of absence from the city to serve as interim chief of staff for his friend, U.S. Rep. Steven Palazzo, in Washington.
